In this episode, we meet with Director Bartomeu Marí of the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MMCA) to learn about the defining features of Korea’s modern art landscape.

In the words of Director Mari, “Art is made by artists, and artists belong to a community, a time and a place.” We invite you to take some time to step into Seoul’s burgeoning art scene, to explore the complexity, the richness and the density of Korean modern and contemporary art.
